Now Trending: Silk Scarves
Say Hello to Spring’s IT Accessory
Scarves are nothing new - but they’re certainly getting a new resurgence among celebrities and influencers alike. The first well-known appearance of silk scarves dates back to 350 BC, when Egyptian Queen Nefertiti donned a finely woven scarf as a headdress. Centuries later, Hermés put out the first “luxury” silk scarf, made of Chinese silk, and began the ongoing trend of luxury brands releasing branded, iconic scarves into their collections. Now, we have seen these logo-adorned scarves on nearly every runway - from Gucci to Louis Vuitton, and on many celebrities over the last decade - from Audrey Hepburn to Bella Hadid.
“When I wear a silk scarf I never feel so definitely like a woman, a beautiful woman.” - Audrey Hepburn
Versatile and oh-so-chic, scarves make the perfect addition to any outfit. Here are 5 ways to wear scarves that you can add to your style arsenal:
Old Hollywood Glamour
Inspired by Audrey Hepburn and Hollywood starlets, this look is iconic, chic, and perfect for protecting your hair from a light wind or rain. You can achieve this by folding the scarf in half, wrapping it around your head and tying it underneath your chin.
Ideal for a festival or a trip to the coast, roll up your scarf and wear it like a headband with the ends hanging at your nape. You’ll channel your inner Bella Hadid or Blake Lively in no-time.
The perfect way to add some style to your ponytail! Whether you rock it high or low, tie the center of your scarf around your pony.
Pin Up Perfection
The ultimate #GirlPower style - From Rosie the Riveter to Rihanna, this scarf-style is the ultimate show of inner strength. Roll the scarf up, wrap it behind your head, and tie it slightly off to the side.
Take inspiration from India Arie and Jada Pinkett Smith and let that scarf shine by fully wrapping the scarf around your head and hair.
No matter how you style it, scarves are a great way to add a pop of color, pattern, or style to your outfit!
